New Corvette offers power and fuel efficiency

General Motors has announced that the EPA has granted the new 2014 Corvette Stingray its EPA estimated fuel efficiency ratings. The EPA has given the car efficiency estimate of 17 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on highway. GM says that drivers who use the Eco-mode will be able to achieve 30 mpg on highway.

Eco-mode is a user selectable mode for 7-speed manual versions of the Stingray that deactivates four the eight cylinders of the engine when power is not needed. Eco-mode is constantly active on automatic equipped Stingrays unless the driver is using the sport shift paddles on the transmission.

GM says that the MPG estimates make the Stingray the most fuel-efficient Corvette ever produced while it offers more power than previous versions. The Corvette will be available this fall in coupe form with the convertible coming by the end of the year.

2014 Nissan Pathfinder 4WD Platinum Test Drive

Oct 1 2014 8:45pm CDT | Source: autoMedia.com

You don’t bring a 2014 Nissan Pathfinder to Manhattan Beach with any notion of snapping necks as people stroll down the sleepy, but loaded SoCal community. Members of both the Los Angeles Lakers and Kings are notorious for making their homes here, and the Pathfinder that I’m driving passes more than a few cars with winged “B” insignias on their hood. But when I pull up to a friend’s house just steps away from the fa ...

You find yourself holding the keys to two of the most-anticipated sports cars of 2014, and you just happen to be at one end of a long, straight and abandoned piece of asphalt. What are you going to do? Hint: the correct answer is “have a drag race.” In this new video from the The Fast Lane Car, they have the new 2014 Chevrolet Stingray Convertible and the BMW i8 down at the local track, and they are doing some straight-line speed runs.We get to see a total of three ...

Road Test: In The Age of the C7 Corvette, Is There A Future For The Dodge Viper?

Sep 25 2014 8:47pm CDT | Source: autoMedia.com

Not even two years since it began production, the biggest news we’ve heard about the latest version of the venerable Dodge Viper (or, formerly, SRT Viper) is that Chrysler decided to slash its price by $15,000 due to low sales; certainly not the splash they hoped to make after resurrecting the serpent after a three-year hiatus. A lower price, now starting at $86,880, should help, but sales will still be an uphill battle for the Viper. For one thing, the release of ...
